ITA Layoffs

Taxpayers were incensed about financial institutions taking their bailout money and then still taking those fancy, schmancy trips. Today, we know that anger has some fallout. Wells Fargo canceled one of its trips to Las Vegas. That cost ITA Group a bunch of cash, since it plans those types of trips for companies. The Business Record reports ITA is now laying off about 5% of its staff. The article says this is the second layoff for ITA. It seems layoffs just never stop right now.

President Harry Truman proudly said, "the buck stops here." For the Culver family, it's probably "the Buck went here." Today, Iowa's first family proudly showed off the new family dog, Buck. The photo comes courtesy Radio Iowa.
